"Improving Ethereum with EIPs - The EIP Standardization & The Network Upgrade Process + The Top Five ERCs and EIPs to Pay Attention to in 2021"
Come join Pooja Ranjan, Herder-in-Chief of the Ethereum Cat Herders and founder of EtherWorld.co as she describes how Ethereum Improvement Proposals go through the standardization process. She will explain the history of EIP, categories, and the current process to write, review, and socialize the proposals that go on their way to becoming a standard. The network upgrade process is recently separated from the EIP process, so be sure to catch the latest changes and revisions.
A bonus presentation by Quilt researcher Matt Garnett, as he describes the most interesting EIPs and ERCs to pay attention to in 2021. There are several highly anticipated protocol changes expected in 2021, so be sure to listen in the hear of the latest developments. After the presentation will be a Q&A period to get all your questions answered.
About EIPs and ERCs
EIP stands for Ethereum Improvement Proposal. An EIP is a design document providing information to the Ethereum community, or describing a new feature for Ethereum or its processes or environment. The EIP should provide a concise technical specification of the feature and a rationale for the feature. The EIP author is responsible for building consensus within the community and documenting dissenting opinions.
ERC stands for Ethereum Request for Comment and is application-level standards and conventions, including contract standards such as token standards (ERC20), name registries (ERC26, ERC137), URI schemes (ERC67), library/package formats (EIP82), wallet formats (EIP75, EIP85) and more. Historically, an ERC forms the original proposal, perhaps not complete, and with further input, it is refined into something participants agree is useful and deserving of becoming an EIP.
